Polycarbonate Tubing

Polycarbonates are a special group of thermoplastic polymers that are easily worked, moulded, and thermoformed; as such, these plastics are very widely used in the modern chemical industry. The interesting features include thermal and impact resistance. Polycarbonate is becoming more common in housewares as well as laboratories and in industry, especially in applications where any of its main features; high impact resistance, temperature resistance, optical properties, are required. For use in applications exposed to weathering or UV-radiation, a special additive is needed. Some polycarbonate grades are used in medical applications and comply with both ISO 10993-1 and USP Class VI standards. Class VI is the most stringent of the six USP ratings. These grades can be sterilized using steam at 120�C, gamma radiation or the ethylene oxide (EtO) method.
